Take a close look at how much oil you have in the crankcase.

Does it struggle to start at first like it resists to turn over??

Is the exhaust smelling rich of fuel??

Be VERY CAREFUL if you have a injector flooding you can hydro-lock the engine and destroy it!

I may be over reacting but it sounds like you have a injector pouring fuel into the engine.
=Check oil level for being overfilled (seeing if diesel is winding up in engine)

Load test your batteries, perform ficm check procedure. You need a monitor to check for codes. A stated before, you may have a bad injector, also.

oh man i hope its not injectors but it sounds like it may be, i' ll check the FICM first. The smoke doesnt have much of a smell to it but the normal smell, but a stronger sent to it. If its the injector is there a simple way of finding out with out hooking it up to a scanner or computer?

This is necessary on the 6.0........http://www.powerstroke.org/forum/showthread.php?t=259257

It is needed to pull codes, or you can pay someone to run a contribution/balance test.
